About Camp Kindle
Camp2U also began in 2012 when a group serving mostly children on the Autism Spectrum asked Kindle to bring a camp program to them. The one day camp featured camp songs, arts and crafts, science experiments, and lunch. Camp2U continues to serve children that cannot attend a traditional weeklong day camp or residential camp program.
Today, Camp Kindle’s camp programs have served over 4,500 children.
The purpose of Camp Kindle is to enhance the overall well-being of children and young people living with a chronic or life threatening illness, disability, or other life challenge. Camp Kindle’s primary mechanism for achieving its purpose is through camping events held in Nebraska and California. The camps provide youth facing health challenges residing throughout the Central and Western United States with a safe and accepting refuge from the challenges they face on a daily basis. These camps offer opportunities for young people to strengthen self-esteem through interactive participation in educational and recreational programming. Camp Kindle provides supportive environments where children and young adults can safely explore opportunities for growth and acceptance. Camp Kindle also offers year round support designed to offer encouragement and education both during camp and throughout the year.
Our vision is to offer the young people we serve a chance to build a stronger future, one in which they believe in themselves, and where they have the leadership and character to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others.
